. michele former chancellor of washington public schools. the one overwhelming thing you see asian countries. >> i think if you -- go ahead, steve first. >> sorry about that. i see it's about high expectations. we know what it's not. it's not the kids. the kids are manufactured the same way they've always been. even in america, we find the states that have the highest performance had the highest standards and highest expectations not just the states but the schools. we have this middle class malaise of mediocrity in which students are expected not to be pushed because that makes them feel uncomfortable. in other countries, it's about performance. >> michele, how do you see it? if there is an explanation or maybe a host of explanations as to this kind of disparity, how do you kind of interpret it all? >> you know, it's interesting because if you look at the actual scores on the tests, america hasn't changed. that's part of the problem is we've stagnated. the issue is not that we as a nation have become worse. other countries are leapfrogging ahead of us. we are nestled in between the slovak r
, had president obama before he was president met nelson mandela, michelle obama, the first lady and both daughters spent time with him in south africa at his home, of course, this towering moral authority, a man who had visitors from all over the world, especially in his later years when his health started to fail and they had to go to him. world reaction, of course, is just now starting as the news broke so late local time in south africa. the white house quickly reacting to this news, the confirmation from south africa, president zuma having announced it on live television. let's look in on the white house briefing room where we are expecting the president. chuck todd is there. chuck, we have had occasions where we thought the news was coming. sadly, there's no turning it away. >> you'll remember when we traveled with the president to south africa about six months ago, at that time, there s lot of concern about nelson mandela's health then. it very much dominated the conversation that president obama had with south africans when he was there and spent a lot of time reflecting

-performing countries start to lap us. >> michelle rhee is the ceo and founder of students first and joins us now. michelle, are you surprised by what this new assessment is saying about american students or do you think that this is on track, knowing what you know about where our education system has been going? >> you know, actually it's not a surprise. american kids, their scores have not actually changed since the last time the test was administered, so it's not as if their scores have gone down, that's the problem. the issue is that other countries have leap frogged ahead of us, so you have countries like ireland and poland and as tonia that are scoring higher than we are. so we have become stagnant as a country while other nations are really pushing the envelope and growing at much, much faster rates than we are. >> so we talk about stagnation but the oecd, the organization administering this test found a strong connection between higher test scores and the students' school attendance and punctuality. programs like race to the top and now we see resistance to the common core curriculum, wha
